Devon youth health survey prompts responses
LINk Devon report highlights recommendations about health services for Devon’s young people
NHS Devon and Devon County Council have responded to results of a health survey of young people in Devon this week.
The Local Involvement Network for Devon (LINk Devon) highlighted a series of recommendations about health services for Devon’s young people in a recently published report, which consulted nearly 500 young people across the county over a period of six months.
A new Youth Bytes information service in school IT sessions, development of a new website dedicated to youth sexual health and healthy eating, plus an analysis of school nurse availability, are already planned as part of the county’s comprehensive package to improve access to services.
This is part of an NHS pledge to represent the views and needs of young people and take them into account in the continued development of on-line services.
